Default Sasha 2's incoming!

My pair arrived at the house today. I've set them up, left the protective film on for now. Here are some pictures.

I took some shots of the Sophia 3 and Sasha 2's side by side.

So far, imaging and bass better than the Sophia 3. I need less volume on the preamp. These seem easier to drive than the previous Sasha. There is also a sense of weight and power (on orchestral passages) that wasn't quite so pronounced on the Sophia 3.

Fantastic I am following this with great interest! I also have a pair of Carmen Red Sophia 3s and have been thinking about the Sasha 2 after seeing and hearing it at my dealer a few days ago!

Beautiful. Looks like a full time clean-up job. I know you can't wait to hear them.
